Note that this product is produced in Japan and does not contain English instructions.
Zithromac (Azithromycin Hydrate) is an oral antibiotic prescribed to treat a wide variety of bacterial infections. The medication eliminates and prevents the reproduction of bacteria cells allowing the immune system to destroy the infection naturally. It is commonly used to treat conditions such as respiratory tract infections, ear infections, skin infections, lung infections, or Chlamydia. Your doctor may also use it for other unlisted purposes, as well.
How should I use Zithromac (Azithromycin Hydrate)?
One tablet of Zithromac (Azithromycin Hydrate) is normally taken one to three times each day for a cycle of medication lasting one or two weeks, but the best dosage will be determined by your doctor based on the condition being treated, your current health, and the severity of your symptoms. Swallow the tablets whole with a large cup of water. They can be taken on an empty stomach, but you are recommended to eat a meal before administration if you get an upset stomach. Never stop taking the medication prior to being told to do so as the infection may not be gone and can return stronger or more resistant to treatment. Do not change the form of the medicine by splitting or crushing it as this may destroy or alter the effects of its contents. Always ask your doctor any questions you have about the medicine to ensure the correct use.
